China’s BRI greatly benefits Cambodia

CAMBODIAN Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said here on Monday that the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has provided a lot of tangible benefits to his country and other participating countries. Hun Sen said the BRI has injected vital impetus into Cambodia’s socioeconomic development. “Cambodia is among the first supporters of the BRI,” he said.

“Cambodia and other countries in the region have benefited a lot from the BRI.” Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Wang Wentian said 2023 marks the BRI’s 10th anniversary, saying that in the last 10 years, China and Cambodia had achieved remarkable results in their pragmatic cooperation under the BRI’s framework.

He said through the initiative, China has supported a number of mega-projects in the development of roads, bridges and power transmission lines, among others. The BRI, a reference to the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, was initiated by China in 2013 to build trade and infrastructure networks connecting Asia with Europe and Africa on and beyond the ancient Silk Road trade routes.
